I think it was blondie who just replied to chickpea's topic, saying that elders are told not to give people a letter when they are DF'ed. This sparked a matter of curiosity for me. Why is it that people wishing to be reinstated have to write a letter to the body of elders, but the body of elders will not write a letter to a person stating that they are DF'ed? What is the (and I know there is one) legal reason for this particular protocol? Anyone know?
I'm curious also because I'm 95% sure I'm going to be DF'ed soon, once the Thought Police catch up with me--and they've been very lazy about that, mostly because I've not spread around too many questions about the way the organization does things. That, and, well, what better "princes who rule for justice itself" than unskilled shepherds who routinely abuse their sheep, right? I love it. Any thoughts on my question would be welcome here. Thanks.
